General in Aquino case given 10 days to avert prosecution

The Philippine armed forces chief, Gen. Fabian Ver, and 25 other people were asked Thursday to show cause why they should not be charged with the murder of opposition leader Benigno Aquino.

The ombudsman investigating the case gave them 10 days to produce evidence, saying the majority report of an inquiry commission had accused them of being the principal suspects.

The report, released last month, said they were indictable for the murder of Aquino and Rolando Galman, the man the military says killed him, at Manila airport on Aug. 21 last year.
